The Ethical and Economic Case Against Lockdowns
Last Friday, February 19, I gave about a 1.6 hour Zoom talk to Ryan Sullivan’s class at the Naval Postgraduate School.
It was titled “Don’t Forget What We Know: The Ethical and Economic Case Against Lockdowns.”
Here it is.
By the way, the most surprising thing I heard from Jeremy Horpedahl in his debate/discussion with Phil Magness is that when there’s an externality, there’s a presumption in favor of government intervention. I disagree and I say why at about the 28:50 point.
The Commissar Komisar discussion at 54:27 is based on a short blog post I did here.
